Jim Bob Duggar Dismisses Change.org Petition: 'They Won't Succeed'
More than 182,000 people signed their name on a petition to get 19 Kids and Counting canceled, and now Jim Bob Duggar is firing back at his critics.
Last month, in an open letter to The Learning Channel (TLC), a Change.org petition said, "End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars. The Duggars have been using their fame to promote discrimination, hate and fear-mongering against gays and transgendered people."
According to The Pathway, Jim addressed this very petition at the annual Booster Banquet at Hannibal-LaGrange University on Nov. 21. "We love everybody, but we don't always agree with them," he said, adding that he is not afraid of his reality show being canceled. "They won’t succeed. Our show is the number one show on TLC."
"It's a small group creating this fuss. All it has done is give us more exposure," Jim continued.
In fact, the Duggars' official Facebook have gained 50,000 fans in just the past week bringing them up to over 415,000 likes.
